The Resort

On the east coast of Borneo – located in the Sulawesi Sea – 4 double bungalows with sea view (each two bungalows in one building), 2 garden double bungalows, 2 single bungalows with sea view and 3 garden single bungalows were built in the style typical of the country on the two-hectare island . Around the island there are some small sandy beaches. Due to the tides, swimming is sometimes only possible at the jetty.

The exotic resort combines natural magic with a family atmosphere. The construction of this little paradise was based on the vegetation, not the other way around. Ecological aspects influenced the construction significantly. Perhaps because of this, the rare coconut crabs are still at home on Nabucco, as are large numbers of medium-sized monitor monitor lizards, kingfishers, flying dogs and various species of lizards.
